Westin :: { Well Being }

When Westin Hotels invited me to experience their freshly launched campaign #WestinWellBeing over the weekend, there wasn’t a chance I could have said no. With activities like sleep, meditation, superfoods, spa-time and relaxation, how could I?!

The Well Being movement is a Year-Long, Multi-Million Dollar Global Initiative featuring New Partnerships, Programs and a Dedicated Council of Wellness Experts that invites its guests and associates around the world to discover the world of well being and enrich their experience at Westin Hotels through the hotel’s six brand pillars: Feel Well, Work Well, Move Well, Eat Well, Sleep Well and Play Well. Sounds fun right! For me it was a double whammy. Not only did I get to experience a fabulously relaxing 2 days over the weekend but I also got to be a part of the entire launch of the worldwide campaign first hand. The energy surrounding it was literally palpable. Here is my experience of #WestinWellBeing.

Check-in at Westin Gurgaon was super easy and quick which led us straight to our room. Isn’t she a beauty?

We rested a bit and soon it was time for lunch. And yup it was going to be a superfoods lunch. At Prego, The poolside Italian Restaurant.

Lunch comprised of Asparagus + Pear + Baby Celery + Goat Cheese Salad, Salmon on a honey glaze and some fresh juices & cocktails. I know I know, alcohol doesn’t count as a superfood, but the additives sure did.

And that’s Chef Emiliano at Prego. So cute. He was almost like a superfood for the eyes!

The evening was the best part of the stay – The Heavenly Spa!
I have also experienced the Heavenly Spa at Westin Sohna HERE.

We decided to indulge ourselves in a fresh Raw coconut + besan body scrub followed by an almost delicious papaya + banana body wrap. My mouth was actually watering when the spa manager was explaining the process to me. We came out of the spa with baby skin and that too without applying any moisturizer.

After a quick nap we headed to the official launch of the campaign by the poolside where the guests had been invited to experience the six pillars of wellness at one place. Cocktails, draught beer, healthy appetizers and lovely people. There was even a Heavenly bed set up by the poolside. It was literally calling me to come jump on it but I held back.

Dinner was lots and lots of sushi and Asahi (Japanese Rice Beer) with some new friends at EEST, the Asian restaurant run by Chef Wong who can even speak in Hindi!

It had no doubt been a long day but we didn’t feel drained or exhausted at all. I reckon if I stayed on for about a week I would’ve had the energy for the entire month at this rate. We went straight to our rooms to get some shut eye on the famous Heavenly Bed. And yes you can jump on it as much as you want. Its super fun.

Morning came in a softly as a feather. Breakfast was massive and healthy. Peanut butter banana sandwich, salmon, brie, grapes, eggs and a ‘Tea Egg’, my first.

Some more resting to digest the breakfast and it was time to leave. The stay was one of the most relaxing hotel stays I’ve ever had even though we were up and about trying different things. Usually by the end of the day you just want to crash but that wasn’t the case with us at all which was a pleasant surprise. We left completely refreshed and feeling very well. I even adopted the little green teddy bear I found on my bed. Have named him Clover. I think he’s going to be my lucky mascot.

For the next week nearly 200 hotels and resorts will hold wellness events and programs open to the public including a week long Wellbeing run with eminent personalities across Chennai to clock over 2000 kms organized by the Westin Chennai Velachery, launch of a detox program at Westin Hyderabad Mindspace along with a SuperfoodsRx breakfast and group yoga and meditation sessions and special itineraries for guests to experience Wellbeing at The Westin Mumbai Garden City and Westin Pune Koregaon Park.

    Wow! I can only imagine how much fun and relaxing it must have been. Loved looking at the photos on Instagram. However, now looking at the photo of Asahi and Sushi, the water is just pouring out of my mouth yuk…I guess I have to head to Kyoto or someplace now 😛
